DTF nabs pair on meth charges

Two people are behind bars after Covington County Deputies went to execute four felonies warrants on a man on Point A Isle Road.

Drug Task Force Agent Josh Hudson said Wednesday afternoon that deputies went to 26489 Point A Isle Road to serve four felony warrants from Pike County on Eric Glenn Padgett for fraudulent use of a credit card.

Hudson said when they arrived they found methamphetamine, glass smoking devices and a bag of marijuana.

There was also a small child at the home.

Shown are the meth and marijuana, and smoking devices found at the home on Point A Isle Road.

Hudson said that Amber Pinkston admitted to using drugs in front of her child.

Padgett was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana first degree and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held on a $23,000 bond for the new Covington County charge and there is a hold on him for Pike County.

Pinkston is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts chemical endangerment because she’s three months pregnant.

She is being held on a $513,000 bond.

Additionally, agents found a firearm in the home.

Hudson said charges from that would come from the feds, whom they had already notified.

Agents look through the wooded area behind the mobile home on Point A Isle Road for marijuana and meth.
